Overview

A WALK THROUGH BEIJING'S PAST -

Beihai Park is a veritable variety show on weekends! Enjoy the free entertainment; then visit the endangered hutongs, and tour the gracious and stately home of the "Mother of China."

Entertaining, enlightening, and enchanting are words that best describe this walking tour through Beijing’s past. Begin at BeihaiPark, Beijing’s most popular park that was founded in the 900s. Besides the historical aspect, it’s a veritable variety show on weekends! Watch people practicing ballroom and traditional Chinese dancing, juggling and singing. Next move on to a leisurely stroll through the lakes district, with its endangered hutongs. These ancient housing areas are fast being replaced with modern housing. Finally, spend a relaxing respite at the gracious and stately home of the late Soong Ching Ling. She was known as the “mother of China.”
